DUNGEON SIEGE: IN THE NAME OF THE KING: AN EPIC ADVENTURE BEGINS, PART I: THE BEGINNING Test-Screens In The Valley!

Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. I was at a comic book shop near my house the other day when I saw they were handing out passes for this. I tried to ask my writing partner if he wanted to go, but I couldn’t keep a straight face long enough to pull it off. A nearly three hour long film by Uwe Boll? I think I’d rather just get in the ring and let the pinhead beat on me a bit. It’d be quicker, and I wouldn’t have to sit through another bored Burt Reynolds performance. Seriously... is anyone actually anticipating this one?
Hello, FuturamaFan1987 here with another review! *MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD* I went to a screening of In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale at the Winnetka, so I figured I'd share my own thoughts about this particular abo-----I mean movie. As everyone knows, In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale is a movie by the master of crap Uwe Boll. So far, his movies range from crap, to explosive diarrhea. So, why did I even bother to see his next movie? Well, it was free. Besides, a movie with Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, and Ron Perlman can't be that bad, right? Right? Shit. So, In The Name Of The Long Ass Title is about a farmer, cleverly named Farmer (Statham), who's village is attacked by some creatures commanded by Gallian(Liotta), who controls them through a weird swirling vortex, that strangely looks like a flushing toilet. Farmer's wife and her exploding cleavage is captured and his son is transformed into a burrito. Okay,okay, he was killed, but during the burial scene, it looked like Farmer wrapped the poor dead kid in a giant tortilla, but I digress. So, while he's swearing vengeance, meanwhile, Burt Reynolds is being plotted against by his nephew, played by Mathew Lillard who, no offense, looked totally drunk during this movie. I sympathize with him at this point. Meanhwile again, Farmer, Merrick(Perlman), and Some Random Dude(Some Random Dude) go on a quest to find his wife, and kill Gallian and his toilet flush of doom. Along the way, they encounter rejects from Circus Du Sole lead by Kristana Loken which serves no purpose to the plot other than show off their crappy effects. So, all the good guys team up for a bunch of epically lame battles with the retarded creatures, who are so dumb, they light themselves on fire to be used as catapult bait. Oh, and something about John Rhys Davis and Leelee Sobieski doing magic, but I stopped caring around the 30 minute mark. So, lets get this out of the way. This movie blows. Hard. I mean extremely hard. So hard, that I hope it destroys Uwe Balls career. If this doesn't put that nail in the coffin, I don't know what will. He managed to take a 60 million dollar budget, and still make it look like shit. He had 150 minutes at his disposal, yet developed no one. He had a bunch of pretty good actors, and turned them into jokes. The only ones to come out of this unscathed is Statham, Perlman, and Davis who are pretty okay in this. Liotta and Reynolds get it the worst. Liotta seems to pretend that he didn't have a career and just completely ham it up to an infinite degree. Reynolds just looked like he didn't want to be here, so much so, that he wears a t-shirt during his *SPOILER BUT I DON'T CARE!* death scene. Lillard looks completely shit-faced and everyone else is just there for set dressing. Also, characters completely disappear during the movie. Something Mr. Boll has a talent for (Billy Zane in Bloodrayne anyone?) Poor Loken is left behind from the final battle, so she goes off to be in a failed Sci-Fi Channel series. Lillard is also left behind after his big fight scene, with no hint of his fate. *Sigh* So the film pretty much ends like you expect it to end. Farmer is attacked by books, and Gallian gets stabbed by Farmer's wife, giving Farmer the edge to kill him. Gallian dies, and the monsters he controlled walk off to jump off a cliff or something. Farmer and wife kiss, and Uwe Bolls name pops up like it means something. Cue boos and me writing down "Poor" on the screening paper. So, when this film comes out, don't see it. In The Name Of The King: Don't See This Movie!!! This is FuturamaFan1987 telling you, that if you see this movie, bad things will happen.

    I'm in awe of Boll for all the wrong reasons...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    I've been stunned by his ability to secure so much money, and to be able to get himself to direct and produce so many movies, with so little talent, in such a few number of years. And Boll has consistently managed to cast decent actors -- several of them, in fact, to appear in just a single film. Boll has proven to us what we've always suspected -- that most actors are essentially whores who will prostitute themselves for the right price. Seriously, if you are an aspiring filmmaker, you should study up on Boll's dealmaking abilities.

  • Nov. 5, 2007, 4:14 a.m. CST

  • Nov. 5, 2007, 5:17 a.m. CST

    Sounds wonderful.

    by Knuckleduster

    The one thing that makes Boll movies worthwhile is listening to his director's commentries on the DVDs (For the love of Jeebus, do not watch that shit on the big screen). Just listening to what this guy has to say is the strangest mix of shock and pitiful laughter you'll ever experience. There is no man alive today with his level of naivety, paranoia and incompetence. And for some reason he still thinks he's the dog's bollocks. Great fun.

    I might have to rent this when it comes out on DVD. How did this guy get $60 million? Damn, maybe if I was incompetent enough, I could be rich. I'm sure he embezzled most of it anyway, judging by the crap that's on screen.

    You've gotta hand it to Boll though...

    by HueyFreeman

    The man's got talent; I mean, somehow he manages to butcher all these video game properties with his shitty-ass movie adaptations, manages to get a budget to do it, AND actually manages to get actors among the likes of Ray Liotta and Ben Kingsley. If that's not talent, I have no idea what is.

    by judderman

    after he splurged $60 mil on Highlander 2 (and that was back when the dollar was actually worth something). I haven't yet seen a Boll flick (life's too short) but I doubt he will continue to make films for much longer; apparently the tax loophole he relies on to get financing has closed.

    if he only made B-movies with a B-movie budget and B-movie actors and didn't take himself so seriously. Granted the movies would still be awful but at least people wouldn't be angry that he wasted good money and talent. And I bet he'd actually develop a real cult following.

    by dr sauch

    I thought this was an Apatow movie, like WALK HARD or something. I don't know who Uwe Boll is, and I'm not going to try and make the mods here think I'm cool by bashing him. I may take my little brothers to see this, but get like reeeeeeally stoned before we go. I was high when I took them to see SW Episode I. Being high in a theater full of hyperactive kids with a shitty, deafness-inducing multi-million dollar sfx bomb while eating loads of shit from the concession stand is an experience I recommend to anyone.

    maybe he's like the andy kaufman of directors...maybe it's one big joke that he is able to secure the money for these flicks and then churn out shit-like he's playing us and hollywood for fools....and he's actually a genius, mocking the vapid action movies of the industry...and then the producers are like- fuck it, this has to come out so we can recoup at least some of this money, and we can't ever admit that it is shit...(the thing is, that would work in theory once or twice, but not repeatedly)

    I mean wtf? Why do they work for this turd? He has a terrible rep. He's also one of the only directors to even have his own permanent topic over at IGN because he's hated so fucking much.

Oh yeah, and I remember browsing IMDB about a year or two ago and telling a friend about Mr. Boll's upcoming shitfests, and they replied, "Fucking DUNGEON SIEGE? A FUCKING DUNGEON SIEGE MOVIE?

    by palimpsest

    ...I watched ALONE IN THE DARK and HOUSE OF THE DEAD a year or so ago. Not on the same day, I hasten to add. Frankly, he's not a director. In fact, "camera pointer" might be more accurate a description, though others were credited with that task on these movies. He's adept at buying up vaguely bankable properties, making shit movies for pennies, then giggling on his bed of money while we fume about his lacking artistic integrity. I raise my hat to him as a businessman, though that's not the same as welcoming his cinematic ginger orphans into my presence ever again...

    UWE BOLL IS A GENIOUS

    by chris2million1

    Well actually he's a really crappy director, who knows his tax law. Everyone is asking how does this guy keep making movies?! How does he do it!? Well it is because of tax shelter laws in Germany that investors can make zero money and still make money in the form of valuable write offs. So until they change the law, unlikely, Uwe boll will keep making movies, well, because he can...thank you German government.

    I, too, have a cinematic stash o'shame, filled -- I am loathe to admit -- with things far worse than the discs of Dr. Boll. This stash has brought me an equal amount of joy and anguish, laughter and tears. Mostly tears. I do wonder about myself sometimes. <p> Especially heinous is my copy of Highlander: The Source (the original cut) which makes Dr. Boll look like Lindsey Anderson.

    We should thank Uwe Boll.

    by orionazul

    I believe that we appreciate great movies like Lord of the Rings, among others, more when we are exposed to "the waste of time and money" movies that Uwe Boll poop out his ass.

    Another thought. . .

    by orionazul

    Why do actors who have actually made a decent movie before keep signing up for Uwe Boll's cinematic abortions? Why does Jason Statham sign up for a movie by this guy? These actors must do some research, right? They have to know that this guy couldn't make a decent movie to save his life. The only thing I can think of is that these actors need the money. . .

    press junket? interviews?

    by zom-bot.com

    as far as i know, there aren't any junkets or interviews before these movies come out- any other picture with this many name actors would have stupid little interviews all over E and shit, leading up to the release....I'd LOVE to hear any of these actors talk about the picture, or Boll's directing style, or anything.....I can only imagine he's a one-take director....and god forbid anyone ask him what their motivation is...."hey Uwe, why is my character so hell bend on being immortal?"..."so he can live forever! now go stand by that tree and be angry!"

    I've read another review and it seems Krug is in it!

    by Stalin vs Predator

    It made references to Krug several times. Strange, I thought Craven killed him off in the end of "Last House..." Perhaps it was only an evil clone.

    As an actor

    by carpetofstars

    I'd be in one of his movies anyday. You already know it's going to suck so all of the pressure is off of you to deliver a great performance.

    AhHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    by DocPazuzu

    I knew, of course, about the Boll beatdowns, I just didn't know MiraJeff was one of the beatees. I, too, feel floods of violent rage course through my body whenever I read anything MiraJeff writes -- even when I agree with him. That takes a special kind of talent, I must say. He's like the Fettastic of AICN reviewers. <p> I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I salute you, Dr. Boll.

    It's weird about those DVDs with no value whatsoever, that one hates and really should be rid of, but... just... CAN'T. <p> I swear, sometimes when I see them there on my shelves I can almost sense them watching me and chanting "One of us! One of us! One of us!"

    I had to see the Uwe fights for myself

    by Bobo_Vision

    And I found them on YouTube:<p> http://tinyurl.com/2blkxj<p> Did he fight all four fights in one night? If so, you've gotta give the guy credit, that's quite a feat. Mirajeff had some good footwork, but wasn't quite able to get off of a defensive stance...but I give him credit for at least getting in the ring to take shots at Uwe, successful or not.

    Fucking hell, Jarv...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...you must live in an awesome neighborhood! Well, either that or you live in a remote Scottish fishing village. <p> Seriously, though, Half Light has the worst - WORST! - so-called "twist" I have ever seen in a film.

    As for MiraJeff...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...I think we should get him riled up to the point where he'd be willing to fight talkbackers.

    The only Boll film I've seen any of

    by Mattyboy122

    Was Bloodrayne and it was dreadful. Some bad movies are entertaining (Batman & Robin, Wild Wild West) because they have so many 'wtf?' moments and are just complete trainwrecks filled with unintentionally funny moments. Bloodrayne, however, was just boring. I don't know if anybody here has seen Simon Sez, but that's another terrible film that commits the cardinal sin of boring its audience (well, aside from a few unintentionally hilarious moments involving Dennis Rodman pulling off inexplicable stunts). I wish Boll could make bad movies that were somewhat entertaining by being unintentionally hilarious, but as far as I can tell, his films are terrible and boring. For shame.

    i like to think i know a thing or two about the talkbacks

    so id like the inside scoop on why we hate mirajeff. since im not clear on that right now.

    Bay, Wiseman, and Anderson are worse

    by Gozu

    See, no one is either seeing or funding Boll's movies. He's having trouble finding investors because everyone knows he's the worst director alive. However, Paul W.S. Anderson, Len Wiseman, and Michael Bay keep making really shitty movies but they can turn a profit. Those are the guys who are killing the industry, not this wannabe Ed Wood.

    A painfull viewing

    by warocketajax

    I happened upon this movie some time back (I think almost 4-5 months back) and well i could not resist a viewing. I must say the content of the film was... um....well lets just say it left me ill. I will give any movie a look, even Uwe's films, as i love films. I stopped this one about 20min into it, I tried to push on, skipping ahead looking for good bits...but the more I did the more my stomach started to pull its way up my esophagus to escape the true horror of what Mr Boll can produce. So yes go catch this film and even pay for viewing if you wish, but take the advise of all those posts that say NO! NO! BAD Uwe BAD!

  • Nov. 7, 2007, 5:54 a.m. CST

    Right, Jarv...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...not to mention that - SHOCK! HORROR! - there actually WERE real supernatural shenanigans going on, and - GASP! NO! - pretty much everyone Moore's character knew was in on the "plot". <p> Stinko!
